Why do I say this? If I'm experiencing something unpleasant, why on earth would I just shrug and go "That's the way it is"?
Perhaps because it's true. Since it's happening that is the way it is. This isn't to say that I don't want it to change. This does mean however that I will not change it. Instead, I'll create an opportunity for it to change itself. Instead of being active or passive in the situation, I just create a new situation. I add something to the situation, a possibility for change.
Basically, it's 30 degrees to the left from any other position.
